    Maybe I should have. One of my favorite qualities about the ukulele world is the friendliness you often find. I wasn't trying to hurt anyone's feelings.

    Just to be clear, it wasn't a dig at Cap...

    That's because you've been duped by BIG UKE. You think you're an independent reviewer, but you're just a pawn in their schemes to take over the ukulele world.

    Proof? Sitting next to me are...

    Haha Ed, the UkeSAs are why I'm asking. I'm starting to second guessing myself. Are the last two the same Banger? The middle picture looks like the bouts are the same size; the last picture has a...

    I remember wanting a uke kit, but not having heard of them until they were unavailable. If I recall, they were still quite a bit cheaper than these UkeSA ukuleles. And if there weren't such a thing...

    Cutaway Aesthetics

    A while back I thought about putting in an order for a soprano Oreo or Homestead from Bonanza. There were fewer options with the Homestead, since that was the point, but they included a cutaway...

    I have to agree with some of the other comments. I haven't bought from Mim, although I came close a couple times. And there was once or twice where she dropped the ball with emails, though this has...

    Between the two ukes, it's tough to say without playing them. Especially the vintage Kamaka. In my experience, Ponos seem pretty consistent, so I feel comfortable saying their deluxe mango pineapple...

    I started to edit my comment, but just decided to make another post.

    For what it's worth, many players don't consider ukuleles under $500 as "high end," although starting at around the $300 or...

    I have no experience with them myself, but I've heard good things about Mele ukuleles. I think they sell primarily through eBay, and a quick search right now for Mele pineapple soprano brings up two...

    Thanks, I've been thinking about getting a LoPrinzi for a while, although not in walnut. I was considering cherry. I don't have much experience with walnut as a tonewood; did you specifically request...

    Thanks Hodge, that was very helpful. I've wanted to try a LoPrinzi (tenor or soprano), but I always end up with something else. Maybe I'll get my chance with a baritone. And the few Bruko sound...

    I don't want to derail the thread, but can I ask why you sold the MP Cali (instead of one of your other baritones), and what was it that made you buy it again (instead of a different baritone)? I've...

    I agree. I've looked at these (loose, not installed) and they felt sturdy, but I find the part where they screw in very ugly. And if you had them and wanted to upgrade to something like Gotoh UPTs,...

    Is it just me, or is this year's NAMM yielding a rainbow of dyed woods? Kanile'a has blue. Lannikai has new purple models. I think I saw a green Breedlove. And that pink Kamaka!

    Just kidding about...

    Didn't Rebel ukuleles make a big splash at NAAM last year? I'm interested to see if they, or Romero, or KoAloha have anything interesting this year.

    There are definitely makers like Kamaka that I...

    I would love to hear what you think of it when you get it. I'm curious what kind of a tonewood bamboo would make.

    I should also mention, there's a Martin OXK Soprano in the marketplace right now for $225. I don't know your budget, but it would make an excellent travel uke. The body is made of HPL (formica, not...

    This sounds right given their prices. But I would still recommend Mainlands. Or Ohana at near the same price point or maybe slightly less. And I would second Jerry's recommendation for an Enya at a...

    What a beautiful uke! Can I ask: what is the parend made of? And I know Ditson was a retailer that Martin produced ukuleles for; are there any features that makes it a Ditson style soprano, as...

    I agree pushing $300 isn't cheap, which is why I was surprised. I don't think I've ever picked up a Mitchell or a Luna, so I can't speak to their quality, but given what's available online from...

    Is there a website to go to for more information and images of these UkeSA ukes?

    That's interesting; I wish that were true of the Guitar Centers around here. I was just there the other day, and not only did it seem like most of their ukuleles were Mitchells, they had a concert...
